Chiefs mock 5.0 time.  What I usually do is switch players up early on and then when we get closer to the NFL draft you will see some common players that I happen to like.  We are getting closer to April 26th when the draft begins.  I am really curious to see what Brett Veach can do in his first draft.

One thing I did not do in this mock is have a WR.  The Chiefs would like to add WR's.  I guy I had in a mock to keep an eye on is Dylan Cantrell.  He played with Mahomes in high school and Texas Tech.

Here are my other mocks:

Mock 1.0:

Mock 2.0:

Mock 3.0:

Mock 4.0:

**Round 2 pick 54-Lorenzo Carter-EDGE-Georgia-Went away from Lorenzo last week but going right back with him in this mock. I understand the need to go corner here but I feel one way the Chiefs can make their secondary better is someone that can get to the QB.  Will be interesting to see the development of Tanoh Kpssagnon this year but at this point it is hard to count on Dee Ford.  Justin Houston is still in his prime so I am expecting a protective season from him.


From Lance Zierlein on NFL.com: "STRENGTHS Tremendously long and rangy. Long strider with ability to cover ground quickly and close on wide flowing plays. Effective use of arm length. Consistent punch and separation against blocks. Takes contain responsibilities seriously. Plus quickness in lateral slides. Frame unravels to catch running backs who think they are in the clear. Uses long-arm stab to access blocker's frame and set the edge. Build-up speed creates downfield angles to the sideline to challenge ball carriers and receivers after catch. Active as tackler to search for and yank at the football. Forced and recovered six career fumbles. Has edge-threatening get-off. Uses slinky upper body to slide around blocker's punch. Flashes talent to flip hips around the arc and flatten to the quarterback. Posted 15 career sacks."

**Round 3 pick 78-M. J. Stewart-CORNER-North Carolina-Can work outside or in the slot and brings a physical brand of football in the run games makes him an all around versatile corner.

From Lance Zierlein from NFL.com-"BOTTOM LINE Stewart is well-built and very physical in both his coverage and his run support. He's athletic enough to handle man coverage duties from a variety of techniques whether playing outside or inside and he has the instincts, ball skills and toughness to transition to safety if need be. Stewart can be deployed in a variety of positions in the secondary which should lend itself to early playing time for him with a starter's role in his future."

**Round 3 pick 86-R. J. Mcintosh-DT-Miami-Had an impressive pro day after not testing at the combine.  Would like to see him on a defensive line with Chris Jones and the newly acquired Xavier Williams.

From Lance Zierlein on NFL.com: "STRENGTHS Talented and a plus athlete. Plays with low pads and good knee bend. Uses effective arm-over to beat initial blocks and make tackles in the backfield. Quick get-off and ability to get skinny could make him an intriguing one-gapper. Able to recover against move blocks and play over the top into the play-side. Plays with plus flexibility and moves like a defensive end in space. Productive tackler from an interior position. Pursuit quickness gets him involved on more plays. Shows blockers a moving target as rusher. Has foot quickness to be an edge rusher. Quick to stop rush and play the throw. Had seven batted passes in 2017. Blocked two kicks this year on special teams."

**Round 4 pick 122-Shaquem Griffin-LB-UCF-Hard not to like the production you get from Shaquem. Ran a 4.38 40 yard dash at the combine which was the fastest for an LB since 2003.  He was player of the year in the AAC in 2016.  I just hope he is still here in the 4th as he is moving up the board and will attend the draft in Dallas.


From Lance Zierlein on NFL.com: "STRENGTHS  Possesses good athletic ability. Smart player who processes the game plan and executes. Attacks face-up blockers with maximum arm extension to keep his frame clean. Carries some upper body power at the punch. Asks for no quarter and gives none. Looks to punish as hitter. Impressive total of 13 passes defensed on 42 targets. Instinctive with the talent to play 3-4 inside backer and 4-3 outside backer spots. Has intriguing burst when edge rushing. Accelerates quickly off the snap and can outrace some tackles to the edge. Posted 18.5 sacks over two years as an outside rusher and blitzer. Plays fast uses good technique."

**Round 4 pick 124-Wyatt Teller-GUARD-Virginia Tech-First team All ACC guard.  I have mocked guards to the Chiefs this year because I feel they need to address the offensive line pick particulary a guard.  Wyatt has the toughness and attitude that the Chiefs could use on the offensive line.

From Lance Zierlein at NFL.com: "STRENGTHS Built like a block of granite with a well-proportioned, muscular frame. Carries high percentage of lean muscle mass and is a weight room freak with a 400-pound power clean, 460-pound bench press and a 600-pound squat. Can punch and press defenders out of his frame with no worries. Uses well-targeted, accurate hand placement. Consistently locks arms out in pass pro and uses them as powerful brace to stand his ground. Possesses excellent body control and is able to maintain balance through contact with ease. Ornery play demeanor suited him in 2016. Shows an ability to center and sustain as drive blocker."

**Round 6 pick 196-Durham Smythe-Tight end-Notre Dame-Would come in as a physical run blocking tight end.  Impressed at the Senior Bowl with his versatility.  Had 3 catches for 48 yards in the Senior Bowl.  I had Durham in my mock 1.0 and I like the potential.  He didn't have the catches because Notre Dame was heavy on the run but doesn't mean he can't become a good pass catcher and sounds like he is already on that path.


**Round 7 pick 233-Sean Chandler-SAFETY-Temple-I am staying with Sean again here.  If you notice he has become a main staple on my mock drafts.  I like his versatility and the fact I feel he could help on special teams.

From NFL.comChandler is known as "Champ" around his hometown of Camden, New Jersey, overcoming a rough childhood to excel for the Owls during his career. He was the Philadelphia Inquirer Defensive Player of the Year as a high school senior, picking off eight passes and returning three for touchdowns. As a freshman, he started all but the opener, making 65 tackles, intercepting one pass (against NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana's son, Nick) and breaking up eight others. Chandler's sophomore season was no disappointment, as he earned second-team All-AAC honors by starting every game, posting 65 stops (5.5 for loss), intercepting four passes (taking back two for scores) and breaking up 10 others. He also impressed as a punt returner (17 returns, 206 yards). He repeated the second-team all-conference accolades in 2016 (51 tackles, 3.5 for loss, two interceptions) despite moving from cornerback to free safety. Chandler was named honorable mention All-AAC as a senior, starting all 12 games and finishing with 74 tackles, 1.5 for loss, two interceptions, and three pass breakups (two punt returns for 9 yards).

**Round 7 pick 243-Logan Woodside-QB-Toledo-I had him in the last mock and I will stay with it again this week.  While the Chiefs have the #1 and 2 QB on lock down with Mahomes and Henne and the recently signed Matt Mcgloin to be the third stringer (for now).  Chiefs need arms for OTA'S and mini camp and I think Woodside is an interesting guy to keep around and they only have 3 QB's on the roster.  After all he led the nation in touchdown passes 2 season ago.  Plus I always like these MAC guys.
